ABOUT US

Discover Kerrisdale Estate - You build your dream home and we supply an abundance of natural beauty, lifestyle features and pure convenience at no extra cost. 

Kerrisdale Estate is one of the most desirable and popular estates in Mackay.  The estate is currently run and managed by the 7 children of Joyce and Norm Shuttlewood. The Shuttlewood family grew up on what was then a sugar cane property, along with other generations and extended family including the much loved matriarch Polly Shuttlewood.
 
Our seven Mackay shareholders have diverse skill sets from careers in farming, business, management, finance, trade, education and training. Combining these with a deep love of the land means we have the ingredients to build an estate of which we can be proud.
 
Our vision is to create a high quality residential subdivision in Mackay and share the benefits and delight of an environment and location that is close to our hearts.
